In 1999 I started working for a company who provided support to Jaguar cars. Later Jaguar employed me as a contractor directly.
Through my time at Jaguar my main role was supporting the production VMS systems. I was responsible for all issues relating to the operating system and layered products supporting the production application (OPCON). This included:
- Networking configuration
- Disk Shadowsets
- Operating installs and patches
- File system jorrnals
- Backups (System and Application)
- Hardware configuration
- Disaster recovery planning
The hardware consisted of a cluster of four Alpha 1000’s running OpenVMS 7.1. Three shadowsets provided shared reliable storage for the application and operating system.
Following one particular system upgrade, I received a personal letter of commendation from the CEO of Jaguar.
